NEVFEST - NORTH EAST VEGAN FESITVAL
First of all a great big vegan shout out to the organisers and attendees of the North East Vegan Festival (NEVFEST) which was held last Sunday, 31st May 2015 at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland. It was a fantastic event and so many of you turned out and made it such a massive success so THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! It was great to meet some really great customers with some positive feedback and comments and some amazing fellow traders - there was a real buzz throughout the day. The event not only brings great products and producers to you, but also helps raise money for a great charity the FARPLACE ANIMAL RESCUE CENTRE, which while we are talking of them are opening a brand new charity shop this coming Saturday 6th June in Clayton Street in Newcastle. They will be selling a whole host of donated items as well as new vegan products many of which you may have come across at the event. Head over and see them sometime next time you are in Newcastle and if you can't get there, head over and give their Facebook page a great big LIKE! Good luck guys - hope it goes well!
Alkamy.co.uk will be taking their hand made 100% pure soy wax candles, organic lip balms, hand creams and reed diffusers to the following events, it would be great to see you there too!
Saturday 6th June 2015 - Morpeth Town Hall Art and Crafts Fair
Sunday 7th July 2015 - Whitley Lodge Community Spirit Big Summer Fair, Whitley Bay
Saturday 13 & 14th - Medieval Mischief, Castle Keep, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Until next time,
Some customers may already be aware that there are changes coming into practice from the 1st June 2015 regarding the labelling of products and for the first time these will now include Candles, Room Sprays and Reed Diffusers. The new CLP labels will be displayed on all candles and other home fragrances items from the 1st June 2015, however, as many items are already in the marketplace it may be some time before you as the customer actually see any of these labels on your products.
There are a number of new pictograms on the labels which will replace the old orange style warning labels that we have seen now for many years on our household products. Along with this the Fire Safety Pictograms, under EN15494, will also be included on the labels and relate to the safe burning of candles.
A new document has been added to our website and can be found on the footer of each page of the site. This contains details of all the pictograms and their meanings which customers may start to see soon on their home fragrance items. Further information can also be found on the European Chemicals Agency website (http://echa.europa.eu/).
Although Alkamy candles are made from 100% pure soy wax, and that this is not a hazard under the new regulations, the fragrances added to candles are included under the new regulations and therefore CLP labels will be added to our candles and reed diffusers from the 1st June 2015.
So, here in Whitley Bay, we will be making up a LOT of labels over the next week - candle making will have to wait!
